Returning to university accommodation
Some students may be eligible to return to university accommodation after first year.
In order to allow prospective students the same accommodation guarantee we offered to you for your first year, we do need to limit the number of returning students we can accept into our accommodation. Subsequently, allocations will only be offered to those with a significant reason for requiring it.
In accordance with section 2020/21 Allocation Policy, the following groups of students are eligible to apply:
- Students requiring a physically adapted room that cannot be accessed in the private sector
- Students with visual impairment (with or without an assistance dog)
- Students on the autism spectrum who cannot be provided with appropriate support to live in accommodation other than that provided by the University.
- Care leavers and estranged students who are unable to obtain a guarantor in order to live in private accommodation.
Students with extenuating circumstances who do not meet the eligibility criteria listed above will be considered on a case by case basis (section 9.7).
If you think that you meet the eligibility criteria, please register your interest by completing the Returning Student Interest Form. Completed forms should be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than midnight on Friday 31st January.
Completed forms will be considered by a panel comprising of representatives from Accommodation Services, Disability Services, Wellbeing Team and Students’ Union (section 9.6). Successful students will then be contacted and invited to complete an application via the Accommodation Hub in February.
